Octomom tells Oprah 'Baby Addict' admission. Octomom Nadya Suleman tells Oprah Winfrey she was a baby addict and self-medicating. She appeared on the show Friday for a financial intervention from money guru Suze Orman.
Suleman has been plagued with money problems and threatened with eviction from her Southern California home. The Octomom says she felt a "hole" after six children and wanted more, but that after 14 kids, the hole remains. When she said she paid for in vitro fertilization through savings, Orman replied on the Oprah Winfrey show, "Lie, lie, lie!" and said she had seen the finances and insisted she had borrowed the money.
Orman heatedly urged Octomom Suleman to give up private school and excessive gifts for her children, and a personal trainer and manicures for herself. "It makes me want to throw up thinking about it," Suleman said in response. "I am so stupid. I am so stupid." The financial guru urged "Octomom" to get an agent and look into doing more television and other media with her children.
Suleman did a few television shows in the months after her children were born. However, it's been something she is no longer doing over fears that she would be perceived as crazy or exploiting her children. "They already think you're crazy." Orman said on Oprah.
